Boone said Voit is scheduled to play 5 – 6 innings at first base with SWB on Wednesday and the Yankees envision him returning “in some unspecified time in the future” on the road journey that begins subsequent Tuesday at Tampa Bay.

It’s unclear whether or not or not Odor’s harm may have an effect on that timeline.

“I’d say over the following seven or eight days he’ll play 5 – 6 video video games to get him constructed up and hopefully be in place to hitch us eventually on the road journey,’’ Boone said of Voit earlier to Odor’s harm.

The Yankees have felt Voit’s absence, unable to find a very good reply throughout the infield with out him.

They first turned to Jay Bruce, who struggled further on the plate than at first and ended up retiring. Since Bruce left, DJ LeMahieu and Mike Ford have generally stuffed in, with Odor at second base when LeMahieu is at first.

“He hits the crap out of the ball every time correct now,’’ LeMahieu said.
